You're right - I did mean hellebores  Will get out there with the bfb this weekend. Mulching might have to wait til later, as I have too many bulbs in that bed to mulch until the leaves die down.  Thanks for the tip.

Sorry to hear about your cousin AWB.  I love your way of remembering people though - trees for memories.

So pleased the hongkongers arrived safely LPilly - have a wonderful time with them.  Has little GD changed very much?

Bought the ingredients for Nigellas choc cake last night - it was a hit, and has been requested again.  Will make it this evening, in time for Chicklets 18th(!!!) tomorrow.  Seems like our year of landmark birthdays just goes on and on

Favourite variety of your plants......
